The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has debunked allegation of undermining the judiciary and democracy in Nigeria levelled against it by the Presidential Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PD) in the 2023 General Election,  Atiku Abubakar.

 The APC in a statement signed by its National Publicity Secretary, Barr Felix Morka, in Abuja refuted Atiku’s claim and called on Nigerians to disregard the spurious claim.

Morka wrote: “Our attention has been drawn to a Press Statement by a media aide to Atiku Abubakar, Presidential Candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP). The statement alleges that the All Progressives Congress (APC) and its government are engaged in a plot to intimidate members of the judiciary towards unduly influencing the outcome of pending cases before the court. Atiku Abubakar and his minions offered no evidence to support their wild, hollow, and mischievous allegations.

“Quite frankly, there is nothing in Atiku Abubakar’s statement, that is worth a reaction from the APC. It is just arrant nonsense, totally lacking in substance and cogency. Its only imaginable purpose is a childish attempt to float an alibi to deflect the shame of a highly probable defeat in court, having miserably failed to make out a credible case to justify his bogus claim that he won the last Presidential Election. 

“President Bola Ahmed Tinubu and our Party won the election convincingly. We have full faith and confidence in our courts to dispense electoral justice in accordance with our Constitution and all applicable laws.”
